Aberrant Ceramics is the ceramic artwork of Aaron Nosheny.

I work in the medium of stoneware clay and make hand-built pottery, primitive sculpture, hamsas, and a variety of other forms. My work celebrates and pushes the plasticity of the medium. The content of the work follows an inner landscape of biological obsessions, psychic damage, and bouncy cartoon animals.

Dead-Eyed Caroler Mug

I bought this monstrosity at a flea market in New Jersey around 1995.  I got rid of most of my chaotic kitsch decor from that time, but I can't let this one go.  I'm fascinated that someone thought these pale scary children would look festive and Christmasy.  My confession:  I blackened their eyes to make them look more macabre.
